Quid pro quo (“this for that”) harassment occurs when sexual favors or activities are explicitly demanded in exchange for a job or educational benefit. 2. Hostile environment sexual harassment occurs when unwelcome sexual conduct significantly interferes with school or work performance. It is behavior that creates an intimidating, hostile or offensive learning or working environment.
